Gonzaga basketball manager gets on the court
Some of the rhetoric accompanying this WJLA story out of Gonzaga High is probably a bit much. Like, I'm not sure if a high school team manager who gets in a game necessarily qualifies as a "real-life hero," any more than an actual high school basketball player would.
"He learns through love, wins through hard work and succeeds through perseverance," is also a bit much.
"What a lesson everybody in that audience and every player on that team learned," someone else said, and again, I'm not sure what the lesson is, exactly.
But before my Cynics of America card arrives in the mail, I will say that the shots of Gonzaga manager Jay Jones getting into a recent game and being carried off the court on students' shoulders were pretty fun, anyhow. I couldn't stop myself from watching.
